The Leader of the Opposition Hon. Nathan Nandala-Mafabi who seconded the Motion called on the government to clear the mortgage that the late Egunyu has been servicing on her house.


“The government should settle the mortgage of the house that she has been servicing so that the children are not left on the streets to become destitute,” he said.

He added that Egunyu lived an exemplary life that should be an example to all Members of Parliament and that she leaves a challenge for them to protect the integrity of Parliament.

The Member of Parliament for Tororo County Hon. Geoffrey Ekanya suggested that Parliament and government as a whole should establish memorial sites in the city and in the districts for the burial of leaders.

“The generations to come should be able to access all the good things that we say about people who have passed on so that they are not forgotten,” he stressed.

Hon. Margret Baba Diri of Koboko District said that the late Egunyu was a young and intelligent representative in the Constituent Assembly and in the Seventh Parliament who spoke eloquently during debates. She added that Egunyu worked tirelessly to ensure that women issues were included in the Constitution.

The Speaker of Parliament Rt Hon. Rebecca Kadaga had earlier received the body of the late Fiona Egunyu which later lay in state in the foyer where Members of Parliament and the public paid their respects and signed a condolence book.

The late Fiona Egunyu has been a Senior Presidential Advisor on Legal Affairs at the time of her death. A funeral service will be held at the Christ the King Church on Thursday.

On Friday, Ngora District Council will hold a special session to pay tribute to her Egunyu before burial at Kapir in Ngora District on Saturday.
